From CEMENTERIO EN LA NIEVE
By: Xavier Villaurrutia
Porque la nieve es sobre todo silenciosa,
más silenciosa aún sobre las losas exangües:
labios que ya no pueden decir una palabra.

Translation:
Because above all snow is silence,
made even more silent on top of bloodless gravestones:
lips made wordless.
